My FreeSpirit fabrics will always feature endangered animals illustrated in BOLD colors.
The thread palette I have selected beautifully complements my fabrics. My work in comics has taught me to exaggerate the lines and colors to help tell the story. That’s why I added a 12-weight in black and white – it’s a great way to add highlights and shadows, and give sparkle and definition to all of your art projects.
